Translation has become not only my business but also my passion. I enjoy doing it because it involves creative use of the language. Trained as a linguist, I find a lot of satisfaction working with words and phrases looking for right translation solutions that make any translation sound as authentic as its original. Having personal experience living and working for considerable amounts of time both in Russia and the USA, I am absolutely convinced that a translator plays an extremely important role in helping people bridging the gaps not only between languages but also cultures. I love translating because it gives me an opportunity to learn new things in the areas of knowledge that seemed initially very remote from the field of my expertise - linguistics. I have been engaged in translating on and off in the course of many years, undertaking projects specializing in various fields of expertise which allowed me to widen my horizons. I am not a lawyer by education but I have become an expert in legal translation, understanding subtle nuances of differences between Russian and US legalese. I am not an ecologist, marine biologist or environmental specialist but I have accomplished successful translations in these fields as well. The list of my achievements can be continued. I never missed a deadline working on translation projects and I really care about the accuracy and authenticity of my translations. My major interests in translation now include psychology and fiction.
